DEATH SPIRAL

If current trends continue in America, the Republican party is going to have to adapt or perish.

Any conservative reader would deny the above, simply based on the source of the story, but that's OK.  If Republicans deny there is a problem and if they continue to plod along as if nothing needs changing, they won't last in their present form for more than another 10-15 years.

I think there is a split coming.  The right wing, always quick to point out that leading the left is like trying to herd cats, are experiencing "pot meet kettle".  The left is lots more united than it might seem.

Now all the left needs to do is get out the vote, and the right wing realizes this...  thus all the Republican  gerrymandering of congressional districts, and all and the attempts to restrict voting rights of people who are more likely to vote Democrat.

The left is united.  Now come on, let's get mobilized.

I hope this will make a difference in the number of Republicans. But there are a lot of rightwing bloggers who are atheists. GOP leaders might still be able to cultivate Warmongering and bigotry even without the use of religion.

But at least they'll have to change their tactics and their strategy, and they're not too good at that.

Yes, the left must mobilize. Just read despite their fractionalized supporter base the GOP still has the edge in the midterms.

I have to believe the GOP will eventually split into two parties...the brainless Evangelicals and the heartless capitalists.
